    Very nice aquascape indeed. I always want to do something similar and minimal but always end up with jungle haha.

    Its a very simple Aquascape but and a massive BUT it looks like nature designed that tank.

    Its the type of Aquascape that proves that less is best.

    I could sit back and get completely lost in that tank in the first few minutes I could not stop looking all through that Twiggy Drift Wood.

    You have presented that tank as an Aquascape not a fish tank with all the bits and pieces placed ever
    where.

    The title is quite apt...what a beautiful scape indeed!
    Glowlight tetras seem to be a perfect match for this scape and are quite visible too.

    As I see it, I feel that theres one thing missing, some smaller twigs around the bottom of right wood stack. It'll make it appear more stable. I have just shown an idea below and it needn't be the exact same thing. scpp.jpg

    Hamza good idea, but this scape is already dismantled. We have Contest at our local site in Croatia these days, so I'm preparing another scape.

    Nice indeed. Was it just gravel substrate? What plants and ferts did you use?

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you like my scape.

    Substrate is mix of Aqualit, Vulkanit and prepared potting soil, with some positive bacteria for a better start...topped with gravel. Cheap and effective. (y)

    Ferts were added in small amounts, nothing new: nitrate, phosphates, Fe & microelements.



    EDIT: I forgot plant list: HC, Eleocharis parvula, Micranthemum umbrosum, Microsorium narrow & narrow leaf, Java moss, Staugoryne sp. and Eleocharis palustris.

    :notworthy:

    Very nice and minimalistic scape :).

    But i have to agree with hamza... the twig is missing.
    Anyway... great work.

    Cheers
